Although disappointed with the Owls’ 1-0 defeat to Bristol City, Danny Röhl is pleased with the fight his side is showing after four games in charge.
Wednesday skipper Barry Bannan was shown a red card at Ashton Gate and the Robins later capitalised on their one-man advantage when Rob Dickie poked home the winner.
There were many positives to take from a Wednesday perspective despite defeat, and Röhl was proud of the endeavor shown by his players.
The German said: “At first, we knew it was going to be a tough game. Bristol City are a good team, they are organised and good at pressing, they can also keep the ball.
“We did very well in the match and had good opportunities and then came the red card. For me, it was not really clear, it was a foul outside the box but the defender and goalkeeper were also in the area. But this is the decision from the referee and we have to accept this.
“From my side, we did everything, they fought for their life. There was high intensity, much running, good defending and it was a pity that there was a touch from our player that changed the direction of the ball before the goal.
“At the end we had three or four opportunities, massive opportunities to score and we are disappointed, but I am so proud of the team.
“We changed the shape after the red card to create more chances to score and it was good to see how good we were protecting our goal.
“We will prepare during the week and we will be ready again. We had a belief and a good conviction about what we can do.
“All four games you see there was a turning point in the match and we’ve been unlucky sometimes, but in the end the process is in the right direction and this is what we need.”
